  1. NSR Texas

    The North Sulphur River was picked over but I still managed to have some good finds.
  2. Fossil Mix

  3. Northeast Texas Hunt!

    Fun hunt yesterday. I found some huge broken sawfish teeth, shark teeth, enchodus jaw and teeth, mosasaur verts, big heart clam which I've never found in the Sulphur river area and a killer petrified wood Gary point. It got hot around 2PM so I got out early.
  4. That’s what I see but im not and expert(yet). Any info greatly appreciated thanks!
  5. My Growing Collection!

    My man cave is coming along nicely. Most are personal finds from Northeast Texas. A few were gifts or purchases.
  6. Look like today was going to be one of the last mild temperature days with highs only in the low 90's, before things began to heat up again here in Northeast Texas, North Sulphur River area. Went out to an area I have visited in the past but found a creek that was new to me. I was surprised to find some rather impressive fossils right out in the open. One nice mosasaur vertebrae, fish vertebrae, jaw bone, large bone pieces that may be remains of larger worn vertebrae, and a couple of artifacts.
  7. Took advantage of the unusual cooler weather today to visit the North Sulphur River in northeast Texas. Several rain storms over the last few weeks have moved stuff around but the flow now is pretty slow. Walked the main channel a few hundred feet near the water with no luck, so decided to try the dryer areas hoping something has been missed by previous fossil hunters. Finally came across a few vertebrae pieces and then found an intact Mosasaur vert. However, the finds of the day were artifacts as I went down the river. The last one was the biggest and best one I have ever found on the NSR. The bad news is that it will be hard to top this day on future trips but this is not the first time I have said that!
  8. Especially inspired by this object: http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/96343-stone-found-on-beach-in-wales/ but also many others posted in the ID section, I would like to discuss the possibility of construction of a flow chart for "object identification". But I don´t know, if this would make any sense or if it could be helpful. Both for the more experienced ID people or for the unexperienced ID people. It don´t need to be detailed, some "end points" I am thinking of are (of course, it can be deepened endlessly!): Artifact (modern, native American, etc.) Fossil (mollusc, tooth, Dino bone, mammal bone etc.) Rock (limestone, granite, schist etc. Concretion (siderite, pyrite, calcite etc...) Mineral (Calcite, Quartz, others etc.) It would be a long and extensive work. But my interest is more general: Is it even possible and does it make sense? Franz Bernhard
  9. Just for fun... Anyone tried to crack these so called "Native American Indian Game Stone Artifact with patina" open and check if there are fossil crabs inside?
  10. Believe it or not, it was 80 degrees for a high today in the North Texas area. This warm weather made we want to explore the NSR and a new creek that I had discovered on my last visit. There were several deep pools of water in the creek, so this warm weather would help in case I decided to take a swim (not on purpose) while hunting fossils and artifacts. I noticed on my last creek crawling adventure here, that once I hit the first deep pool, the persistent fossil hunting human tracks in front of me disappeared. I wore my waders and headed into the pool hoping for hard bottom and not mud. As I had hoped, on the other side of the pool, the only tracks I found were coyote and hogs. I begin to find small pieces of bone and a few vertebrae and artifacts that were mostly pieces and parts, but they had been worked on by someone. Several others pools of water were challenges but I only got a little water in my waders and at 80 degrees it did not feel too bad. Here are a few pics of the finds and sorry if you are still dealing with below zero weather were you are!
  11. North Sulphur River

    I had a fun trip looking for shark teeth and artifacts yesterday at the North Sulphur River Texas. I found a large Enchodus tooth, nice shark tooth, mosasaur jaw section, other assorted fossils and some cool artifacts. Weather was perfect.
  12. I took an older Facebook friend to the North Sulphur River Texas today who hasn't been in over 20 years. His goal was to find one last arrowhead in the river. We had a pretty good morning and he found a nice Gary point. The partial plesisoaur paddle was the find of the day in my opinion. We stayed within sight of the bridge and and only hunted a few hours but had some cool finds.
  13. It's been a while since i've posted any finds but i had a fun trip recently and thought i would share. Spent about 3 hours poking around and found a great assortment of NSR goodies... I think the dark vert in the middle is Plesiosaurus but 'im not sure. The 3 joined bony fish verts were my favorite fossil of the trip for sure. Found a few nice artifacts including what I think is a Big Sandy point that's about 8k years old. Enjoy
  14. Finally made it back to the North Sulphur River after the big rains. Made some interesting finds, very similar to my last trip and posting on the forum. Again the quantity was down but the quality was good with what I did find. There was still a good flow of water in the main part of the river and the side creeks were full. Took a bath in the cold water (unintentional), these darn rubber boots on the wet shale is like walking on ice. Has anyone found a better solution to that problem? Anyway, found a bone that appears to be fossilized but may be modern cow or horse. The biggest vertebrae is about 3 inches tall and found a really worn shark vert. Hope to make it back after the rains today.
  15. Due to the hurricane I got an extra day off from offshore so I hit the North Sulphur River for a few hours. I found a nice big Tylosaur vert, small mosasaur vert, fish ribs, arrowhead and a big Native American chopper tool. The arrowhead is ugly but I like it lol.
  16. Short NSR Hunt!

    I got in a 3 hr hunt before the rain and flooding. Once the water started coming up I had to make a quick exit but still got wet. I managed to find a few things.
  17. FOSSIL or ARTIFACT?

    I found this in a fossil bed along with some clam fossils I was finding near Globe, Arizona. It was sitting in a depression on the ground near an exposed limestone fossil rift. The white band goes all the way around symmetrically and the rock type does not match anything in the area. is it a fossilized turtle shell, or nut maybe? or an indian artifact, or just an out of place rock?
  18. Fun morning hunt at NSR. Pretty good sized shark tooth for NSR.
  19. I saw the first opportunity to get back to the North Sulphur River yesterday when the temps were going to be below normal for a change. There was a really nice breeze blowing down the river. Went to a spot on the river that I have only been to once before and access is pretty poor. Thanks to whomever added the rope, it helped, especially getting out! Quantity of the finds were low but the quality of what I found was great. Found the largest Tylosaurus tooth I have ever found with a diameter just under an inch. Also a shark tooth and one nice mosasaur vertebrae. I always enjoy the chance to find an artifact, ever though they are rare, or at least for me they are? I liked the way that JarrodB displayed his artifact recently, so I photographed this one the same and it turned out pretty good. Not sure the type, could be a Marshall, usually I find Gary's, so this was a nice departure. I will be watching for another cooler than normal Texas summer day to get back to this spot.
